Yes, there were consistently good shows in Providence. To add to that list of surprises there was Supplication in 1980 and Iko in 1981.
I don't listen to anything past June '83 and rarely '82-83 for that matter. I do like the Crazy Fingers from Red Rocks '82 though.
None of the really smacked up shows could be higher than 3 stars considering tones like 5/2/70.

My friend Jeff and I left school early in my dads red 1973 Buick Electra. Told high school principal we were going to see the Dead in Prov. He said...have fun...imagine that now??
This show really is one of the highlights of the 83 spring tour....I think the show really gets going at the China>Rider...Esau and Maybe you know to start the 2nd set was hot but this Bertha is unreal!! My vote for the Best Bertha of the 80's. Estimated>Eyes smokes...the estimated jam and jerry solos in Eyes are incredible. Love the space into throwing stones...the earlier throwing stones (non sampson jam in the middle) were much better and this one stands out among the best...The morning dew is great and I do remember the carpeted hallways during Sugar Magnolia...Everyone going nuts and dancers everywhere!! Saw lots of friends from Mystic there...Anyway...love Bobbys intro to Dont ease and jerry and brent play some nice riffs!! ...this show is one of my favorites of all time. Had to dodge highway barrels on the way home with my friend Jeff navigating...we were severely impaired from little square pieces of paper:> Take a listen!!

That's why we love 'em in Providence
This has always been one of my all time favorite shows that I have attended in spite of the sound trouble of the 1st set.My favorite looks like rain...incredible break!!!Great vocals from Bob all night long. Check out the double chorus during the break on Bertha!!!!!...Morning Dew won't hurt. They always (well maybe not always) seemed to give us something special here in Providence whrther it be the prelude to China Cat in '74...or rolling out Alabama in '79... or Crazy Fingers in "85...We will always remeber the good times.
